iTunes movie rentals are DRM'ed right? Any hacks?
Is this something that will never be hacked?
Did you read the stickies?
You won't get any help here in cracking programs or hacking DRMs. There are forum rules against theft.
This forum and its members always discourage using cracked/hacked programs on Apple devices. Then appear to promote and freely discuss stealing services from a carrier. I am not saying you are stealing, I just find it hilarious when anyone condemns others about stealing in this forum.
its not theft when you are buying them and cracking them.
anyway google is your friend. if you can view the videos then you can crack them easy. however why hassle with it? dont support drm at all i say but thats just me. sometimes itunes is cheap but most times dvds are cheaper. buy the dvd, rip it to your drive.
The difference is that cracking DRM is obviously wrong while some people think that if you already have a bandwidth cap you should be able to use up to that on any device you want. I'm not for or against either side. I'm just pointing out the difference.
??? How do you figure that you are buying them? You are renting them, not buying them thus you do not own them. This is theft.... FYI, I don't condone stealing from a carrier either.
It's a rental, if someone wants to own it they can buy it, not crack the cheap rental.
i wasnt talking about rentals themselves, just the itunes videos all together.
it is possible to crack those(rentals) too, same goes for psn rentals but i wasnt condoning the practice no more than i would condone someone ripping discs they rented from netflix. i thought that went without saying.
i took the thread to a different level than everyone else. my fault.
lol? You're topic clearly states "iTunes RENTAL hacks"
It's not every day you find a poster apologizing for not being clear. Kudos.
yeah indeed it does but a few responses gave me the feeling they equated cracking to theft. its not all theft.
Care to further explain how cracking something that you don't own is not theft?
see my previous post
much too kind of you. i admit my error but my post was weak at best.
I reported the thread so the mods can decide if the thread is ok! I say grey at the least.
My bad, I misread the thread.
Technically this is probably not theft. Copyright infringement is a better description.
Nope, it is theft... If you rent something and then keep a copy for yourself, you are stealing a copy and did not pay for it.You paid to rent the movie, not keep it.
Color it how you want, but it is still theft.
Theft is generally applied when you deprive someone of their property. Steal a car, steal a house, steal money (even digitally), etc. They are deprived of their property. In this case you are not depriving someone of their property because the "item" (term used loosely) is infinitely reproducible in unlimited quantities.
Use Netflix for an example. Receive a DVD in the mail and falsely report it as lost so you can keep it would be theft. Copying the data onto your computer would be copyright infringement because the original disk is returned not depriving someone of their property.
You are depriving someone of something. You are depriving the movie companies and actors of their money. You are stealing from them, not the rental company. Copyright infringement is a form of theft IMHO...
I understand what you and the courts are saying but I don't agree with it. You are depriving the owners of the intellectual property their money so in my eyes it is still theft.
Here is how I feel about it...
Unfortunately, this topic will never go away because there will always be thieves who try and rationalize what they do because they refuse to admit they are amoral losers.
I have stolen over 500 albums and 200 movies and numerous App Store and Cydia apps since I jailbroke...and proud of it. I will be practicing IP law in about 6 months too. U Mad?
I assume you passed your MPRE and your Moral Character exam with that attitude? Must have forgotten about 8.4(a), (b), and (c)...
Way to make us all look bad, mate.
Christ, you'd think that the least you could have done was use "misappropriate" or something.
